He was a Chemical Operations Specialist in Deseret Storm. After his duty in the Army, he returned home. He was received by family and friends at a home coming at the Stewart Hoover Post #23 in Blackfoot and served for that post. He was instrumental in getting the flag at Jensen Grove to honor another family member, John Powers for his service in the Vietnam War. Later, he lived and worked in Provo, Utah. There he met his wife, Krisene Nelson. They were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. To this union was born a son, Ethan Watson while living in Provo, UT. They moved back to Blackfoot, Idaho and a daughter, Kandis was born. They were later able to adopt a baby girl, which they named McKenna. Troy worked for WalMart while going to school at Idaho State University. He graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science.
